Falcons' Deone Bucannon: Links up with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon has agreed to terms on a contract with the Falcons, William McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Bucannon offers Atlanta's defense key depth as a versatile linebacker/safety hybrid with veteran experience. The 2014 first-round pick racked up 28 tackles (16 solo) across 14 combined games with the Giants and Buccaneers last season.

Giants' Deone Bucannon: Racks up 25 stops in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon recorded 25 tackles (15 solo) across nine contests in 2019.

Bucannon played a reserve/rotational role in New York's linebacker corps to begin the 2019 campaign, but he saw a steady increase in workload down the stretch. That culminated Week 16 against Washington, during which Bucannon notched seven tackles (two solo). The veteran is now set to become an unrestricted free agent.

Giants' Deone Bucannon: Active for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (illness) is active for the team's Week 16 matchup against Washington, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Bucannon appeared on the injury report Saturday but has recovered enough to be active. He's steadily seen his workload increase of late and played in a season-high 34 snaps in Week 15 against Miami.

Giants' Deone Bucannon: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon has been added to the injury report as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Redskins due to an illness, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Bucannon's status will depend on how he is feeling closer to kickoff. If he is unable to go, Josiah Tauaefa will be the only depth available at inside linebacker behind Alec Ogletree and David Mayo.

Giants' Deone Bucannon: Joins Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Elsen of the team's official website reports.

Deone Bucannon: Released by Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon was let go by Tampa Bay on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The veteran linebacker had to be looking forward to playing a game in London, England, on Sunday, but following his release, he won't get an opportunity to do so. According to Schefter, it's expected that Bucannon will get an opportunity to play elsewhere. The 27-year-old was not seeing regular opportunities with the Bucs up to this point in the season, managing just three tackles through five weeks.

Buccaneers' Deone Bucannon: Left off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (knee) wasn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's practice, suggesting he's fully healthy.

Bucannon suffered the injury during the team's third preseason game, but as evidenced by this news, avoided anything serious and was deemed healthy. The 27-year-old could start should Lavonte David (knee) sit out, but Bucannon figures to have a role on defense and special teams regardless for Week 1 against the 49ers.

Buccaneers' Deone Bucannon: Suffers knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon picked up a knee injury during Friday night's preseason game against Cleveland, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Bucannon was ruled out for the remainder of the exhibition, though according to Greg Auman of The Athletic, he isn't expected to miss any significant time. He'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.

Buccaneers' Deone Bucannon: Signing made official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon signed a one-year contract, $2.5 million contract with the Buccaneers on Wednesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Bucannon receives $1.45 million guaranteed, per Spotrac.com. The deal is essentially a low-risk, "prove-it" contract for a versatile young talent whom head coach Bruce Arians and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles are already familiar with. The Bucs' new head man had a hand in making Bucannon a first-round pick out of Washington State in 2014, and Bowles directly oversaw the 26-year-old's transition from safety to linebacker as Arizona's defensive coordinator during Bucannon's rookie season. While Tampa has a significant need at linebacker in the wake of Kwon Alexander's departure to the 49ers via free agency, Smith notably mentions that Bucannon is likely to be used "in a variety of ways" under Bowles, including as a possible linebacker/safety hybrid.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: En route to Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers are expected to sign Bucannon, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Bucannon has familiarity with the Bucs' new coaching staff, having worked under Bruce Arians for his first four seasons and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles as a rookie in 2014. Those four campaigns marked Bucannon's most productive as a pro, as he ranged between 82 and 112 tackles each year. Under the one-year experiment that was Steve Wilks, though, Bucannon fell off a cliff, playing just 34.9 percent of the defensive snaps en route to 38 tackles. Bucannon will hope for a revival as he mans the dollar linebacker position in Bowles' scheme.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (chest) is active for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reports.

Bucannon was a limited participant in practice throughout the week as he returns from a three-game absence. The outside linebacker has logged just 21 tackles in 10 games this season.

December 14, 2018 04:40 PM
Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bucannon practiced in a limited capacity each day this week. The Washington State product has missed the last three games with this injury. If Bucannon isn't able to play, Zeke Turner would likely see an increase in work.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (chest) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Bucannon has not participated in practice since suffering a chest injury Week 11, and he will now miss his third straight game. A timetable for the 26-year-old's return remains undisclosed.

December 6, 2018 05:32 PM
Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Not practicing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (chest) did not practice Thursday.

Bucannon has remained a non-participant in practice since suffering a chest injury Week 11 against the Raiders. The 26-year-old appears on track to miss his third consecutive game, allowing Zeke Turner to once again receive an uptick in snaps.

December 1, 2018 09:48 PM
Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Won't play Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (chest) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Bucannon hasn't practiced since sustaining the chest injury Week 11 against the Raiders and will miss his second straight game. The 26-year-old currently has no official timetable for return.

November 30, 2018 03:16 PM
Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (chest) did not practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bucannon did not practice in any capacity last week either, and he appears on track to miss his second consecutive game. If Bucannon is unable to suit up against the Packers in Week 13, expect Zeke Turner to once again see a slight uptick in snaps.

November 24, 2018 09:56 PM
Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (chest) will not suit up in Sunday's game against the Chargers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

This news comes as no surprise, considering the 2014 first-round pick was unable to log any practice time this week due to a chest injury. Fellow linebacker Zeke Turner could be in line for an increased snap count with Bucannon out Sunday.

November 21, 2018 07:32 PM
Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (chest) did not practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bucannon exited Arizona's loss to the Raiders in Week 11 due to a chest issue and continues to manage his recovery from the injury. The 2014 first-round pick will likely need to practice in at least a limited extent for any chance of suiting up against the Chargers on Sunday, so his Week 12 availability is currently uncertain at best. If Bucannon were to remain sidelined for any amount of time, Zeke Turner would be in line for an increased defensive workload.

November 18, 2018 06:36 PM
Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Questionable to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders due to a chest injury, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

Bucannon exited Sunday's tilt against Oakland during the fourth quarter, so if he's unable to return it won't necessarily indicate anything about the severity of his injury. As long as Bucannon remains sidelined, expect Zeke Turner to slot into the starting lineup.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Falling out of favor in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon logged seven defensive snaps during last Thursday's 45-10 loss to the Broncos.

After averaging 104 tackles per 16 games over the first four seasons of his career, Bucannon seemingly entered the 2018 campaign as a key player on the Cardinals defense. However, the 2014 first-rounder didn't perform to expectations in a full-time role in the season-opening loss to Washington, played only on passing downs in a Week 2 loss to the Rams and now has only topped 10 defensive snaps once in the last five games. It's clear Bucannon has fallen out of favor in Arizona, and there are whispers that he could be on the trading block. Don't expect this former IDP asset to provide of any significant value anytime soon.
